COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This west coast style ale is brewed with a shapely malt body and enough hops to keep her feisty. Amberís Hot Friend will never leave you with any bitter feelings.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
Draught at the brewery, 5.1% ABV
Cloudy amber color with creamy head. Minimal aroma of hops and caramel. The mouthfeel is very dry, a bit too weak, with some caramel, strong bitterness and a metallic aftertaste.
Nothing exciting.

less malt and more hops than other ambers ive had, its more like a solid pale. strong carbonation good head. great finish as the hops are present and bold but not aggressive

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2007
On Draught at the Washington Brewers Festival. Aroma is citrus hop blend forward with light sweet malt. Appearance is a hazy copper with an off-white head. Flavor is sweet malt forward with strong hop flora, more like an IPA. Beer has a medium/light body and strong carb texture mixed with the bittering. Overall, a very interesting beer, just too hoppy to be considered an amber.

Crit (3334) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2007
Tap at fest : Cloudy amber, small beige head. Light piney hop/sweet malt nose. The flavor is mostly malt, it could certainly use more hops

Amber in color with a thin head. This was great amber ale and a great way to end the festival for me. The beer had a deep flavor and the name was also very fun. Liked the mild malts that gave this beer a refreshing easy drinking ability. Good use of hops and a nice easy finish.

after4ever (6108) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2007 Draft at Fredís Rivertown. Pours deep murky amber with a thick, moussy white head that almost looks like a nitro pour, itís so creamy. Nice piney nose, though not very strong. Medium body, tingly carb, forward flavors of caramel, biscuit, and pine, ending in a nice crisp pine finish. Good stuff. A little closer to an IPA than an amber, but who cares?

Heavely malted biscuity bread style with nice caramel notes and lingering sweetness. Smooth and pleasant.
